Ramsay Garden

Ramsay Garden is part of what makes Edinburgh’s skyline truly beautiful. This view is from part-way up The Mound, just behind the National Gallery buildings.

Patrick Geddes is largely responsible for the way the buildings currently look – having carried out various other urban renewal works near to Ramsay Garden. Despite that having been back in the late 1800s, there’s a rather modern theme to some of Geddes’ work – gentrification of slum areas and provision of student accommodation. He’s quite an interesting character, whose linked-to Wikipedia biography is well-worth a read.
